WS 2310 not logging data via 32 bit inux mint 19.1
« on: April 19, 2019, 06:46:50 PM »
I've tried to get this working and it appears it is not getting the data from the port. I have it set to WS 2310 and I'm set to Com port 1 and tty S0. Software is 32 bit WeatherD.tar.gz 32 bit ver 10.37 lb 53.

[email protected]:~/wdisplay$ dmesg | grep tty
[    0.000000] console [tty0] enabled
[    2.851213] 00:05: ttyS0 at I/O 0x3f8 (irq = 4, base_baud = 115200) is a 16550A
[email protected]:~/wdisplay$ ls -l /dev/ttyS0
crwxrwxrwx 1 root dialout 4, 64 Apr 19 14:25 /dev/ttyS0
[email protected]:~/wdisplay$ ls -l WeatherD
-rwxrwxrwx 1 don don 121132164 Jun 30  2017 WeatherD

 If I try any other setting other than ttyS0 the command window will show errors. Setting it to ttyS0 and it shows no errors but I'm logging no data.

 By the way I found out that I had to create a new password for ROOT to use the chmod command and a straight install of Mint 19.1 does not tell you what the ROOT password is. That requires you to do a sudo Passwd root and it will ask for the new password which you input once then again to verify it. Once I did that I could set the RW settings for both the ttyS0 and WeatherD via the chmod command

 Also in the Linux Weather Display manual you talk about downloading WeatheDLinux.zip. Is that still needed and if it is where is it?

I had a similar (password not WS 2310) issue in Mint 18, I found How to reset root or any other password in Mint.

the baud rate does not look right
should be 9600

I have stopped updating and supporting the 32 bit linux version, sorry  :oops:
only the 64 bit version is supported and updated now
